"My dearest mother," the letter from the young Saudi Arabian suicide bomber begins, as have so many before it. "The day of joy will soon arrive. Send out presents and sweets; prepare my father and my brother for my wedding to come. My black-eyed wife waits for me in Paradise. Rejoice, o my mother, for we will meet in heaven."
Suicide bombers are coming to America's heartland. Their targets: our most precious and vulnerable assets, our children.
Following the most terrifying lead of his life, CIA Director Kirk McGarvey traces the threat to a terrorist known as Khalil. But upon further investigation he is convinced that Khalil and the Saudi playboy prince Abdul Hasim bin Salman are the same man. The White House wants nothing to do with McGarvey's assumptions; accusing a Saudi prince of such a heinous plan will surely strain the delicate political balance between the US and the Saudis, always thought to be allies as well as our major oil suppliers. But McGarvey refuses to let politics stand in the way of him stopping Khalil, even if it means that the President of the United States will call him a traitor, even if it means he must resign as Director of the CIA to pursue him, and even if it means his meddling will lead to the kidnapping and brutal beating of his own wife.
From the deadly frigid Alaskan waters, to the balmy breezes of the French Rivera and finally to the embassy of Saudi Arabia in Washington, D.C., Mac has to unravel the latest threat from Osama bin Laden in order to save American school children from a cadre of suicide bombers willing to martyr themselves for the cause as Soldiers of God.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 05, 2005 – After CIA director Kirk McGarvey and his wife, Katy, barely survive a spectacularly ruthless terrorist attack on an Alaskan cruise ship, McGarvey (last seen in last year's By Dawn's Early Light) vows to track down and kill the terrorist leader known only as Khalil. This should be a simple CIA assassination (McGarvey's forte), but there's a catch: Khalil may be Prince Abdul Salman, a billionaire playboy member of the Saudi royal family, well connected to the White House and U.S. businesses. Given information pointing to a second 9/11-scale al-Qaeda attack, the U.S. president discounts Saudi complicity in terrorism, including Salman/Khalil; McGarvey resigns and goes after Khalil on his own. Revenge drives Khalil and McGarvey both, and McGarvey's wife also has a reason to want Khalil dead. Hagberg (who also writes as Sean Flannery) makes sure that nothing is as it seems, and McGarvey begins to doubt his own conclusions about Khalil's identity. With just days until the attack, the U.S. is under martial law, Katy is kidnapped and McGarvey faces tough decisions about home and country. As much about vendettas as politics by other means (but with a chilling, well-articulated politico-economic backstory), this is a thrilling page-turner, from its violent beginning to its violent end.

Customer Reviews

Pretty darn good!

This one was pretty good! I had to put the book down several times because of brutal detail. But it portrayed those monsters in the light they deserve. It was a little slow about 1/4 of the way through, but for good reason. Would recommend...
